My husband and I stopped at Wimberley Glass works on a rainy Saturday morning right after 10am. We spent about 30 minutes there before heading to a winery, and are very happy we went. We watched the full demo, from the artist laying out gold leaf to color the piece, to forming the final lip on a gorgeous vase. He... More

Stopped here on a recent trip to the Texas Hill Country. Fascinating place - amazing to watch the glass blowing by the artists. This was probably my favorite excursion of our whole trip.

What a place! Work studio and shop in one location. We were there on a Sunday and spent well over an hour watching the craftspeople/artisans working their magic on their own pieces. Honestly, if anyone knows how glass pieces are made, they would be pretty hard pressed to complain about the price!! Then the shop. Oh, my, the glass pieces... More

We enjoyed looking around the gallery area, but found the prices were high on the pieces. But it was fun to look at the creations.

You might find the prices of the vases and art work to be very pricey, but the time you spend watching the glass being formed by craftsman that do the demos is priceless. It is unforgettable, amazing stuff. My kids, teens, love it. We live locally and have been several times.

We drove to Wimberley specifically to visit the Glass Works shop and were not disappointed. The blowers were making long strands of twisted glass for a huge commission of over 1000 pieces of glass that would look like fish swimming on the ceiling. It is very interesting to watch as the glass takes shape and how fast each piece is... More

As an artist I am always excited to see work created in other areas. We were shocked to run across a glass studio while taking a casual drive down unfamiliar roads. I am so glad we stopped to check it out! We arrived too late to see a glass blowing demo, but they were kind and gracious while we enjoyed... More

My favorite part was watching the glass blowers at work. Could've stayed for a lot longer than we did. It's amazing to see these people make such beautiful glass work. I only wish I could afford to buy something too.
